I talked to The Red-Headed Menace’s English teacher this evening. She showed me the first paper he turned in this fall, based on Nate Silver’s The Signal and the Noise. The paper’s title?
“Dilemma Me from Evil.”
We also talked about his proposed senior paper. “It’s supposed to be twenty pages, but his will probably be longer because of the topic he chose….” and she showed me: “Is the U.S. patent system just?”
Hey, good luck with that one, kid.
